Don’t call it a reboot.
It was the call of How i met your father co-creator Isaac Aptaker in the Hulu comedy virtual appearance on the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour on Tuesday. “People keep talking about the show as a ‘reboot,’ and it’s not a reboot, ”he said, before referring to HIMYF as a “stand-alone suite”.
“It happens in the world of the previous series, but it’s really its own thing,” said the executive producer. “That said, we like how I Met Your Mother“, and the creators of the original series Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, as well as the original director / EP Pamela Fryman, are all” very involved “in the making of HIMYF. “There will be a lot of little rewards for the people who love the original if they stay with us.”

Fryman, who directed nearly all of the episodes of HIMYM, is behind the camera again on HIMYF.
“One thing I can take away, having been on how I Met Your Mother for so long, isn’t it how I Met Your Mother – and I loved it how I Met Your Mother“said Fryman.” It is How i met your father, and it’s so spectacular in itself…. From day one on stage with masks we started rehearsing and immediately knew we had something. “
Duff added, who is also a producer, “I think it’s important to know that we’re our own show… we’re trying to create something original. [while] Steal a few things from them that have worked really well.
